Driven by their addiction to heroin, four women encounter friendship and betrayal while working the streets in Sweetheart Deal, a story about a life fraught with insecurity on Seattle’s infamous Aurora Avenue. Shot in unflinching vérité-style over many years, Sweetheart Deal offers an astonishingly intimate portrait of hope and heartbreak on the fringes of modern America and reveals the brave resilience of the women who fought their demons, internal and external, and hung on to the light in the darkest of circumstances.
